Like thousands of asylum seekers in southern Europe 27 year old Rahell finds himself in a "country of transit" deprived of chances to start a decent life.
In a decision of November 4, 2014, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) confirmed that Switzerland has violated the ban of torture and cruel treatment as they wanted to send back an Afghan family to Italy without guarantee. Despite this decision, Staatssekretariat für Migration (SEM) has been sticking to the deportation of asylum seekers, among them families with children.
